#253 ProgrammingShield

A custom ATtiny programming shield for use with Arduino ISP

Build

Notes

I covered programming an ATtiny with the Arduino ISP in the ProgrammingWithArduinoISP project.

Since I’ve been programming a few more ATtiny processors, and simplify the processing of programming an ATtiny with ArduinoISP, I wired up a strip of protoboard to serve as a custom programming shield. This is the layout I chose:

ProgrammingShield_layout

It’s designed to be snapped onto an Arduino UNO, lined up with GPIO digital pins 8-13.

It includes two LEDs on PB0 and PB1, which can be used for debugging/testing a program loaded on the ATtiny.

LEAP is my personal collection of electronics projects, usually involving an Arduino or other microprocessor in one way or another. Some are full-blown projects, while many are trivial breadboard experiments, intended to learn and explore something interesting (IMHO!).

The projects are usually inspired by things found wild on the net, or ideas from the sources such as:

Feel free to borrow liberally, and if you spot any issues do let me know. See the individual projects for credits where due. There are even now a few projects contributed by others - send your own over in a pull request if you would also like to add to this collection.
